Ready to smash your fitness goals for 2017?
Ready to workout at a time and pace that suits you?
The convenience of home workouts has meant home gyms are becoming more and more popular.
Here’s how to set up a home gym, step by step.
1. Define your ‘gym space’
It’s essential that your ‘home gym’ is somewhere you can escape from distractions and focus on your goals.
A council-exempt cabana is a fast & easy way to add space to your backyard, and can be delivered and setup in just one day.
Once delivered and setup by Melwood’s professional team, you can then arrange fitout and painting to make the space your own.
A very important aspect of your home gym is the flooring. The right flooring can make your equipment last longer and reduce strain on your joints as you workout.
The sturdy construction and grid flooring of Melwood Cabanas means they can easily take the weight of heavy home gym machines and equipment.
We recommend adding commercial grade foam flooring – to protect both your floors and your equipment. This is available in interlocking squares, will last for years and is very affordable.
3. Wall lining/decorations
There are a few options available when lining your home gym. Adding gyprock and extra insulation will make the room feel more comfortable as well as helping to absorb noise.
A great alternative to traditional gyprock is to use pre-painted lining boards. We recommend Easycraft – available at bunnings. These systems are a fast, easy and inexpensive way to line your walls.
Once lined, here’s a few suggestions for decorating your walls:
Mirrors along one wall are a great option if you want to keep an eye on your form – however make sure they are safely mounted to the wall, and positioned above the skirting for extra support.
Whether you already have some equipment, or you’re starting out, its best to consider what you are going to get the most use from.
Don’t bother buying that Ab Blaster 2000 – invest in sturdy, good quality machines that you will get alot of use from.
Here are some suggestions:
Now that your home gym is setup, it’s time to start working out and reap the many benefits of a healthier body and a healthier mind – all from the comfort of your own backyard!
